We booked this hotel on the back of the reviews on here, and we weren't disappointed! Fab location, wonderful rooms with a light and airy feel. The children had a family suite, with a double bed in one room and bunk beds in another and separate bathrooms and 2 TVs, perfect!! The hotel is located a short walk from the... More

We recently spent two nights at the Pollux Hotel. We stayed here to enjoy Zermatt during the New Year festivities and to explore the mountains. Arrival/Check-in We arrived a couple of hours before official check-in time, and our room was not yet ready. During the holidays they were surely booked solid, so this was expected. We were able to drop... More

The owner and staff really do care about their guests. The atmosfere in the hotel is more than relaxed. The bar is full, not only by guests but also by locals who like the scene. The hotel is situated close to everything and is in the middle of THE street in Zermatt. Rooms are clean and nice, not five star... More

This is the epitomy of a small Swiss hotel with a small but accessible bar and priavate outside area when the season permits. The room was nicely furnished, clean and quiet. I would recommend the Polllux to anyone. Plus, the cost was reasonable.

Right in the middle of town. Very convenient to the train station and all the shops. Room is large and the bed comfortable. Had a great view from the back with a little balcony looking out towards the mountains. Lovely modern décor. Would stay here again.

I don't know where to start. Let's see... right on the main street of quant Zermatt. If your room faces the street it is great for people watching and not too noisy at night. If it faces the back, you see the mountains. The balconies are fun to hang out on and the mini-bar is reasonable; what a combination! There... More

Location was great. Easy to walk from the front door of the hotel up the hill to get pretty much where every need be. Outdoor bar was nice to utilize in the evening. Service was very slow. Waitress was friendly, but slow. Dinner at the hotel was plentiful and the service at dinner was good. Food variety was good as... More

We stayed here as part of our Globus Tour. Great location and very cozy hotel. We had a room that had lots of windows! Extremely clean and comfortable. The hotel keys are unique and it has been so long since I have used a key in a door that I failed to lock our room upon departing or at night,... More

Part of our Globus tour. Hotel Pollux was a clean, neat, and friendly. Rooms and beds comfortable. Bathroom of good size. Although bathtub was a little dangerous if having a shower as it was difficult to step into and the base narrow. The bar area was very cosy with a nice fireplace. Happy to recommend.

Have stayed at this hotel several times now (including twice last winter), and will be staying many times more - it's friendly, clean, the rooms and facilities are great and the staff can't do enough to help. The bar is great and the restaurant is fine.
